In reality you rubi 44 is about the same as a 30 minus the fact that it has a bigger ring gear......I know your 44 is trussed but it's still holding up to 4.0 power with 37 right? I do agree that it would be a different story say like wheeling Moab!

I've been planning on building something like that for a while. I just can't hammer out a final design. It'll look good on your rig. We need to get out before there is snow. Snow runs are good too though.

So ever since I installed my 5 inch springs my pinion angle has been of causing vibs since the perches had been burned in when I had my sagging 3.5 springs, so I ordered some degree shims which should be here thurs.

The drive line is at 24 degree angle


And the pinion is at a 19 degree angle


So I figure a 4 degree shim should get me real close right???? Haha

I say 4*.
Remember you want it 2-3* low to account for axle wrap...6-7* would put it high.

The pics on my phone make it look right to my eye. Just a tad below dead nuts straight which is what you want...

Not to mention 7* shims will be like 5/8" thick! That's a lot of lost lift and weird pressure on your ubolts, ect..

When/how are you getting vibes?

Cheers
